Naftali Harris, CEO, SentiLink

Naftali Harris is co-founder and CEO of SentiLink, which is ending fraud in the United States. SentiLink’s first product detects synthetic fraud, an emerging attack in which fraudsters make up fictitious people and use them to steal money and commit other financial crimes. So far, SentiLink has verified almost 100 million identities used to open accounts at banks, credit unions, and fintech lenders. Prior to SentiLink, Naftali was the first data scientist at the online lender Affirm and built and led their Risk Decisioning team. In that capacity he was responsible for all of the code and models that decided which applicants were approved or declined. Naftali graduated from the University of Chicago with a BA in statistics, and subsequently earned an MA in statistics from Stanford, where he was a Stanford Graduate Fellow.
